Project Name: image-suggestion-api
Wikitech Usernames of requestors: Nikki Nikkhoui, bpirkle
Purpose: A node API that will be used by Structured Data, bot writers, and (in the future) Android team to retrieve image suggestions for under-illustrated wikipedia articles.
Brief description: We intend to install nodejs and npm, as well as all the packages listed in the project's package.json file. This API is a proof of concept, and will be used as an experiment with the client teams mentioned above. It's uncertain how long this service will need to last for, but the estimated time is weeks or months. The service, as it is a POC, will likely not need a ton of resources, a small VM such as g3.cores1.ram2.disk20 is likely sufficient.
How soon you are hoping this can be fulfilled: As soon as possible!
